The major priority when it comes to children’s rooms is safety, so pick secure children lamps, and pinch them to the wall. Or go ahead and hide all hanging and free-falling cables behind or under the furniture. Place the lamps in places that are out of a child’s reach.
It’s recommendable that for night lamps you use neon light bulbs, so you can be sure of the safety in the case of fire. If you have solar panels, then using night lamps that are charged by solar batteries is also an option.
You can develop a theme for the lighting, depending on your child’s interests:
Be creative. By using the right light bodies you can even “illustrate” fairy tales.
The furnishing and decoration of a child’s bedroom can be quite a challenge, so please consider the following:
- Use your imagination, trust the taste and wishes of your child, especially if it has grown a little bit already. Be practical – the balance between the creative and rational side of decoration for a child’s room allows the room to “grow” along with your child.
- Think carefully how you are going to organize the space. The children’s room has a lot of functions and in order to combine them well, in a harmonious way, you could create different zones. This is a very good option, especially for small spaces is to separate the floor. You separate the room in two. In the fist part, you create a podium where you can fit all necessary elements such as a bed, a desk or a table, add shelves on the walls, a small library, and many other different objects. The second part is set aside and it becomes a free space where the child plays games.
- Choose pastel tones. They reflect the light and the colors enhance the natural light in the room. If your child is a fan of bright colors, however, your child doesn’t need to miss them in his or her room. Let them be the details inside the interior by placing reasonable limits on their usage.
Eye-catching wallpapers and rims will add character to a child’s room.
- You can rely on multifunctional furniture and modules for games, that can be easily transformed. They stimulate the imagination and development of children, as they grow together with the child and his habits. Periodically, add thematic accessories, which you can dispense of once the child changes his or her preferences, or simply outgrows them. It is good for the furniture of a child’s room to be mobile and to be built by materials that are strong and stable.
A couple more tips:
- Think first about the safety of the kid – there should be no sharp edges in the room, cables, and outlets that are left without guards. All materials used inside such as paint, lacquers, floor finish, furniture, mattresses, should be harmless and eco-friendly. It’s recommendable that the beddings and sheets are made of natural cotton. It’s good if the curtains are short and you avoid any decorative elements such as pompons, beads, strands, etc, because children can easily grab them. Avoid also growing flowers in the children’s bedroom because they can cause allergies.
- If you want your child to be self-sufficient, take care and arrange the objects in his room in a way that provides him or her with easy access.
- Give plenty of space and light to your kid – pick the lightest and if you have the possibility – the largest room in the home.
- Avoid having too many toys and objects around. They create chaos and that definitely weights on the child. Provide cabinets, baskets, boxes to use as storage for toys, clothes and other objects. Get enough of them and pick them in different colors.
So, don’t try to fulfill your own dreams when it comes to a child’s room. Upon necessity, you can consult with professionals, add imagination, and consider the wishes and preferences of your child. Try to create his or her “kingdom” – a room that fulfills his needs. A place that is safe, that has functionality and color – a room decorated with a sense of taste.
